The human form is celebrated in a new exhibition which opens at the Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah next week, and includes eye-catching works in bronze by renowned sculptors.
Go Figure: works from the collection, opens on Friday 13 October and runs until Sunday 21 October next year and draws from the gallery’s collection.
Spectacular works in bronze by renowned sculptor Rayner Hoff and his students Marjorie Fletcher and Barbara Tribe, on loan to the gallery from the private collection of a Fletcher family member, are some of the featured works.
They form the physical and conceptual centrepiece of a diverse display of works from the gallery’s collection.
Gallery director Susi Muddiman said one of the primary focus areas of the gallery’s collection is Australian portraits, ‘so these bronze sculptures form a unique and interesting dialogue with our existing holdings’.
‘Exhibitions like this are also a wonderful opportunity to display new acquisitions to our collection, as well as works which have not been seen by the public for quite some time,’ Ms Muddiman said.
Artists featured include Stephen Dupont, Petrina Hicks,Guy Maestri, Angus McDonald, Rod McNicol, Ben Quilty, Monica Rohan and Anne Zahalka.
Don Mitchell, son of Marjorie Fletch, will give an exhibition talk on Sunday, 25 February 2018, at 2pm (DST), about the sculptures featured in Go Figure.
